Read in December, 2011

A charming and more satisfying story than the last two previous book in this series, with a nice balance of philosophical thought and human interaction. So, although this feels more 3.5 on my personal scale, I will call it a 4, compared to the last book.

Once again, this is not a mystery but it is another little human puzzle with several little side stories and nice characters. Grace was not very prominent in this book and her situation offhandedly resolved. Cat is still an issue though, but she and Isabel never seem to have a real conversation, just these chats full of misunderstanding. Jamie is perfection and Charlie not prone to terrible twos, but you don't read these books for realistic drama, do you?

Over too quickly but a nice little conclusion. At least one can be comforted by the thought that the author does churn these books out rather quickly, so the wait for the next book shouldn't be excessive.
